[REBOL] Question on text formatting

From: andy::flyingcat::com at: 28-Aug-2002 12:37

Hi: I'm just starting to use Rebol to make a prototype UI. I'm trying to do kind of specific visual button arrangements, and the like. Unfortunately, there's not that much documentation that I've found on Rebol/View/VID and how I can get it to do exactly what I want... My current problem is that I want to make a TV channel grid. I've got it mostly working, but I can't quite get the channel names to appear in a vertically oriented box, single spaced, so I can scroll it at the same time as I scroll the channel listing itself. Basically I want to get a vertical info box: NBC CBS KYW CAT DOG TRA RRR CCC FFF And so on. I can set up the box, but when I use 'text (as part of the 'layout) the text gets double spaced. I'm obviously doing it the wrong way. Can anyone help ? --- Another question: 'layout (in the old docs) used to have both DOWN and ACROSS, to control default placements. Now it seems to only have ACROSS. What happened to DOWN ? Was it replaced by another keyword ? Thanks, Andy
